There is no such library Boost.Move. Do you mean to implement move like
Boost.Thread does?
If so. I think it is not necessary because one can just write
"underlying_resource_type" instead of "thread_move_t" and ".release()"
instead ".move()".

If copy constructor or move constructor can throw an exception the only
function that works incorrect is release. There is no way to implement
it in exception safe manner in this case.

Note that usually this is not a problem. Usually
underlying_resource_type is not something complex, but rather it is just
int or void* or something like that. So its copy and move constructors
do not throw exceptions.
